in the last second, the saints kicker kicked his longest field goal. the final score was 52-49. like giants fans were upset, but it was exciting. >> we are happy for kansas city. >> oh, yeah. >> we of course would have loved our mets to win. but kansas city royals. they beat them after 12 innings. the final score 7-2. but royals, you have to be happy for the kansas city. it's the first time they're champions in 30 years, hoda woman. >> it was great to see the fans. they were waiting for their guys to come out. they chanted that they loved them all the way out. it was beautiful. >> we were all touched this morning. i don't know if you had a chance to see brad pitt and angelina jolie interviewed by tom brokaw. they were really moving. >> you see them as a couple. we see pictures and video, but
you rarely see that interaction. and they did talk about angelina's many surgeries. she went through a double mastectomy. >> and her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed, too. >> there was no vanity to my wife's approach. it was mature. it was an excitement to wear, this is our life. we're going to make the best of it. it's a strength in that. it's just another one of those things in life that makes you tighter. she was doing it for her kids and for her family. so we could be together. it was trumped everything.. trumped everything and anything. >> i think forasmuch as he speaks about my strength, i knew that he made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was somebody who was smart and capable and cared about her family. that it wasn't about, not about your physical body. so i knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that
was going to feel less of a woman because my husband wasn't going to let that happen. >> it it was beautiful. >> it was beautiful. >> i give that marriage all the hope in the world. >> who'd have thought it at the beginning, you know? >> there's a lot more you don't want to miss out on, including our favorite things. >> plus the handsome guy himselveshimself himself, lou diamond phillips. >> we've got a lot to talk about.about. no. in the basement. why can't we just get in the running car? are you crazy? let's hide behind the chainsaws. smart. yeah. ok. if you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. it's what you do. this was a good idea. shhhh. be quiet. i'm being quiet. you're breathing on me! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. head for the cemetery! kellogg's frosted mini-wheats ... 8 layers of wheat... and one that's sweet.

[ laughter ] >> he's a lot of fun, actually. >> good laughs.
wonderful man. >> you had like a brotherhood, you bonded. >> 100% bonded. i think being in the mine led to the authenticity and veracity of what was on the screen. it's an international, stellar cast. but under those conditions, we really created this bond and chemistry that was very much like what the miners experienced, i'm sure. >> where were you when this actually happened? >> i was in los angeles. i was working. i followed it, because it was part of the 24-hour news cycle. it almost became like reality television because they got the cameras in the mine. and the logistics of getting them out was space age. nasa got involved with the phoenix that you see there that brought them out one man at a time. >> did it occur to you at any point that the same thing could happen to you and your fellow actors, because one of the mines was 500 years old? >> yes, both mines were over 500 years old e and i thought oh, my god, what an ironic headline
that would be. but it's the truth. we were down there the entire time, hard hats, except for the time when we were not wearing it. with mine safety people there. they were constantly checking the ceiling. so yes, that paranoia, that sense of peril was always there. >> did you have any claustrophobe yeah being trapped down there? >> for me, no. but we filmed in the desert. i felt perfectly fine when we were in bogota. we got to chile, and i was like, oh, this happened a mile away. we only filmed the entrances. >> you talked about the brotherhood, you bonded. and there was some singing involved somehow. you created songs. >> can you do a little for us?

"33" hits theaters on the 13th. >> get ready for a rantz on pants and leggin's. >> got my leggin's on. first, i'm going to kidnap lou.ou. we're all familiar with this, axe daily fragrances. but what you wouldn't have seen is this, axe dry spray antiperspirant. why are you touching your armpit? i was just checking to see if it's dry. don't, that's weird. the first ever dry spray antiperspirant from axe.
leggin's. don't judge me. they are comfortable. some people like to use leggin's as britches, as pants, pants. that ain't how they are supposed to be wore. if you can't wear something covering your tail -- >> yay! >> all the way from cleveland, tennessee. were you surprised when we called you? >> yes, very surprised. >> you keep all of your facebook posts private until one of your loud-mouthed friends decided to make it public, right? >> exactly. i have a friend like ricky taylor, she was like, please change your settings so i can share your video. i didn't think anything about it. like a day out it was at a million. >> a million? look at justin bieber! >> you're like justin. >> you do a rant on babies? >> yes. >> let's hear that one. >> well, we're talking about the nurturing -- what is that? nurturing that special bond?
>> we have it. >> well, we, my mother and where i at the moonshine festival a couple months ago. my stepfather does competition barbecue. and we had some parents with babies running around the moonshine festival. it was like 2012 degrees out there. so the babies were sweating, screaming, squalling. parents, i know you want to get your drink on, good for you, but lord, leave them babies at home. >> we're going to pick one of these for you. we love you. >> reclining seats on airplanes. >> okay. i have only been on an airplane three times, two of them being this last week. i'm okay with you reclining the seat. what i do not like is you kicking your feet up on the back of my seat or beside me. if you have to take your shoes off, please for the love of all things holy put on some good,
clean socks. >> or get a pedicure! >> lord mercy. yeah. >> chewing loudly. >> that's hoda. >> i do it. give it to me. >> i have a sister and nephew that do that, and it is terrible. >> you should really work on that. >> tell me. give it to me. >> i can't even handle, i can't even handle the crunch, the sound, the smacking lips is the absolute worst. >> i hear the smacking lips. >> ready? >> yes. >> what's this one? oversharing on facebook. >> oh, lord, well, look, now i overshare quite often. not private. half my friends don't know if i'm still legally married or not. i try to keep people guessing. we have a lot of friends that do like to put pretty much every single solitary thing from the minute get up to the minute go to bed. calm it down. we don't need to know.
>> leah remini has a new book out getting a lot of attention. >> as tomorrow on tuesday, it's already number five on amazon. this is going to be a huge book. she sat down over the weekend with abc news. i think we have a little clip of her very first interview. >> he was like forcibly kissing katie, i was like, hey, get a freakin' room. i was written up for that. being critical of tom cruise is being critical of scientology itself. you are a person who is antithe aims and goals of scientology. >> you don't often hear people speaking out that publicly. >> the first time i've ever heard someone sit down and really tell their story. she talks about the wedding of tom cruise and katie holmes. she claims that she was asked by the church to bring her good friend jennifer lopez to that wedding as a way to introduce her to the church who are very, very anxious, very, very eager,
she says to get jennifer to recruit to the church. now the church has denied this all together. nbc news saying her repeated ethical lapses and callus treatment of others has led to her review which has led to her being actually expelled from the organization. >> if you read her quote, she regurgitates the tiredness. >> also katie holmes has issued an apology. leah claims after the wedding katie hand-wrote a note to the church complaining about leah's behavior. katie put out a statement saying that she regrets any problems she might have caused. >> and the discussion will continue. >> do we know anymore? who knows. going clear has already got them -- >> the hbo documentary on top of that. and i think it's not going to end anytime soon.

and daughter brittany. >> hi, kids. >> laura, laura, laura. >> yeah. >> they are fraught with a lot of love and friction. >> the best part of all these women is they really came raw and ready to work. and it was love from the bottom. the but there's a lot of conflict. there's a lot -- women have a difficult time understanding i am the mother. you are the daughter. we have separate identities. >> velvet and ashley -- >> i'm the mother! >> just kidding. >> let's run a clip so people can see how you interact and we'll talk about it. >> no! because appreciate -- >> you don't appreciate me as a mother! >> appreciated you up until you stopped. >> okay. >> because i care about you and i want you to give me away at my wedding. i don't want you to drink your life away. i can't do that. >> oh. so who's the mother and who's
the mother. >> no. her. we live 3,000 miles away now. so it's really hard. >> how old are you? do you mind me asking? >> i'm 24. >> you've left the coop. you're an adult woman. >> about three years ago my grandmother passed away. and it's been really, really hard on her, and she's kind of developed a partying lifestyle and i'm concerned as any daughter would be. this is my everything. she's my best friend. so it's really, really hard to watch her be weak and go to that lifestyle. >> i feel really bad that i put it on her like that. and i'm the cryer, by the way. >> can we have kleenex, please? >> because to ruleeally come out and realize what i'm doing to her. >> what do you do? >> i go out and party. i don't drink at home. >> what do you worry about,

you're clearly the daughter? >> she's very much the mom. >> i'm a controlling mom, and i've learned that i have to get over that. because i did not realize this is my grownup daughter. she has made great decisions. i need to take a step back and stop the controlling issues. this is not just about mother and daughter needing help, but it's my own issues and a journey of self-discovery. >> i've heard, i love you too much to deny you the privilege of making mistakes. >> we have to let our children learn. >> we do. >> most moms want a redo. and also have a redo. >> you want your daughter's life to be better than mine. >> that's right. that's where the perfectionism comes in. >> you never questioned your mother's love? >> no. she would do anything in the

. it's estimated that 40 million americans are currently caring for an elderly or sick parent, spouse or loved one. >> you know that much of the time you're doing it alone without any guidance or help. the folks at aarp magazine are hoping to change that by highlighting the lives of caregivers in this issue. >> here with us is amy goier. >> are you a caregiver too? >> yes, my dad who's 92 lives with me, she has alzheimer's disease. and i cared for my mother who passed away and my sister who passed away.
i don't even know what i'm doing most of the time. >> a lot of times when this comes upon us, we know it's coming, but even so, we feel ill-prepared. what's first thing we should do to get ready? >> you should plan ahead, have conversations with your loved are. if you're in a crisis, in a happens. talk to the discharge planner. legwork. the hospital. >> and contact the area agency on aging about community-based care and go to the elder care locater and find your area agency on aging. you can also get a geriatric care coordinator. >> through your insurance? >> usually it's not covered. but this is really helpful for long-distance caregivers. >> first you say you have to have a team. you can't go it alone. >> exactly. i can do anything at this point, but i can't do everything. but you have to fill the gaps with other people, other family
members, volunteers from a hospice or respite organization. you can also look at crystal care. my mom's hairstylist came to the house sometimes to make it easier when i couldn't get her there. >> so many people want to be helpful? >> people are offering. you don't take them up on it. when people offer, say yes. so connect with other caregivers. nobody quite understands it like somebody else who's going through the same thing. so we learn the most from each other. we get the most tips from each other. go to a local support group. again that area agency on aging can give you a list or the hospital can give you a list. if you can't go in person, get online. there are all kinds of support groups and community boards, aarp has a community online that you can post questions and get answers. we learn the most from each other. >> the trouble is, if you're a caregiver, you don't have much time to leave the person you're caring for to go to these things.
something you can do from home, these apps and things. >> we're juggling so much, in my lives, my parents' lives. you can do it better if you organize. we have to be efficient. there are all kinds of apps now. i need a grocery i.q. but aarp has a new care giving app specifically for this. you can even create a medication list by taking pictures of the medication bottles. communicate, share calendars. that is really helpful to get it all together. >> one of the most important things is care for yourself. because sometimes you can't give what you don't have. >> that's the hardest part. >> exactly. we don't expect our cars to run without gas on empty, but we expect ourselves to. that doesn't make sense. it's not selfish to take care of yourself. you have to take energy in. know what fills you up, what gives you joy, and take care of
>> the joy is nonnegotiable. >> you say be kind to the caregiver. thank you so much. >> absolutely, great ideas. don't miss our favorite things. they're next. >> but first, this is "today", on nbc. >> what she said. so how ya doing? enough pressure in here for ya? ugh. my sinuses are killing me. yeah...just wait 'til we hit ten thousand feet. i'm gonna take mucinex sinus-max. too late, we're about to take off. these dissolve fast. they're new liquid gels. and you're coming with me... wait, what?! you realize i have gold status? do i still get the miles? new mucinex sinus-max liquid gels. dissolves fast to unleash max strength medicine. start the relief. ditch the misery.
